I was not familiar with Hinze Pens before purchasing this pen and would consider another pen from their selection of exciting and pretty resins for my collection in the future. With its classic design and beautiful resin, the Hinze Pen Company Empyrean fountain pen makes for a great conversation piece and an attractive pen to photograph.
The Delike brass fountain pen is a Kaweco Sport inspired, fine-nibbed pen that has a lot to love and a few things that I don’t like. If you want heavier pocket pens, this may be a good choice at a price that if only a fraction of metal Kaweco Sport.
I love modern fountain pens. The quality, selection and cleanliness seem much better than my childhood nightmares of high-school-required fountain pens. I have horrid memories of my white school dress shirts with blue stains on the breast pocket from fountain pen leaks. But time and discussions with other fountain pen users that enjoy vintage pens had me curious to whether a properly-adjusted, quality, vintage pen would be as disastrous as the school pens that haunt my dreams.
